Bottle at my parents Oktoberfest. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Grain, caramel, sweetness on the nose. Medium bodied, caramel, grain. Sweet and malty, grainy and soft into the finish with a touch of yeast.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Meg O’Malleys-- last drink before leaving and it was unmemorable. Not because it was bad, it just wasn’t that good either. Came to the table with no head. Another soft amber colored beer, with an aroma of light malt and maybe a touch of hops too. Light caramel was the dominant taste with some sweetness. Finish was pretty watery.

This is a pretty decent beer, it lacks aroma, but the taste is solid an crisp! I am most impressed by the balance...

Draft into a stein - pours amber (a guess due to the ceramic stein) with decent amount of off-white head. Nose is caramel. Flavor adds some spiciness and vague malts. Light sweetness. Goes down easy but not memorable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The lightest shade of brown. Looks great. White Lacey head. The aroma starts malty but is well balanced by hops. The flavor is mellow and very sessionable with a good balanced of malt and bitterness but the malty sweetness dominates slightly. This beer is not a malt ball like most oktos. It does finish with a little corn sweetness though letting warsteiner’s true colors shine through as the budweisers of Germany.
